Blind Item #3

Right now they are saying nothing, but prosecutors in this case involving the actor/singer from the hit network show are weighing dropping all the charges against the actor/singer because they are not sure they can make them stick.

Jussie

Melidie said...

For the attack or the white powder letter or both?

The Woodman said...

This is no good.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Based on the case for bail they outlined, it would be hard to imagine that they couldn't make it stick.

Anyway, Jussie has lost in the court of public opinion.

rosie riveter said...

He's already lost everything in public opinion. Meh, whatever. I'd say good enough.
I mean, they don't hall off every Becky and Karen who make outrageously embaraembarrassing calls on
THERES A "PERSON" BBQ'ING IN THE PARK!"
or
"THERES "A MAN" IN A MAILBOX IN MY AFFLUENT MOSTLY WHITE COMPLEX"!
soooo... Whatever.let him go

Jimbonius said...

You've got to be kidding me.

Nutty_Flavor said...

A man in a mailbox?

Brayson87 said...

They'll never drop all the charges but they might do a plea deal, due his sudden inexplicable addiction to ecstasy that disrupted his thinking 😅

Akbar Johnson said...

Not Jussie they have that guy dead to rights, video evidence, a paper trail, his co-conspirators, phone records (including text messages), and they will also get him for sending that first letter. He's definitely going to jail.

Of course a guy like him might enjoy it.

Unknown said...

I said this from day one. Thats why they dropped the whole case in an press conference because they know they wont get a conviction from a downtown jury.

Lonely Bastard said...

Have the feds weighed in yet though?
Isn't mailing threats (even to yourself) a federal crime? The state prosecutors wouldn't be dealing with that anyway. Maybe they're just going to back off to let a stronger federal case go forward instead.

Brayson87 said...

Technically speaking he did commit one hate crime and conspired with others to commit a second one.

Brayson87 said...

It is Chicago though, maybe they're trying to set a precedent for when they let R. Kelly off the hook.

Brayson87 said...

And for those wondering where the bail money came from:

Love told ABC News over the phone: "It was his own money. I just posted bail for him. She added that R. Kelly is a "good friend of mine."

Glitter said...

It wouldn't surprise me if he came out smelling like a rose.

Lonely Bastard said...

@Glitter.

Or at least bleach.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Yeah, Brayson, wasn't that amazing? She used part of the settlement from the death of her child to bail out R Kelly.

Brayson87 said...

@Nutty, It sounds more complicated than that, you'd think just having a daughter at some point would make you run from R Kelly:

Vita said...

Glitter-- he better NOT! Do I think he'll get away with no time...yes. Ive been really worried since Geragos got on the bandwagon and started the reasonable doubt dance. I worry about the CPD press conference backfiring as being seen as depriving him of due process, however, he's just stating the facts! As some here have pointed out from the beginning...he held on to the sandwich!!!

Count Jerkula said...

Never underestimate the people to dumb to avoid jury duty, but ya atleast gotta publicly shame the guy with a trial. Probably, none of the prosecutors wants the loss on their record though.

If not, the city of Chicago should sue him for the cost of the investigation. Civil court required much less burden of proof.

J said...

Sorry, but the "Beckys" etc. are just everyday assholes. They didn't plan their stunts, buy props, pay co-conspirators, go on GMA to double-down, or pull any "I'm a huuuuuuge star!" bullshit.

Heather said...

It is Chicago...he lived at the Loew's residences, not really a shady area. They have bigger fish to fry than him. Go to heyjackass.com to look at the crime stats.

Akbar Johnson said...

Plus the fact that the "Becky's" are usually right, like the lady calling on the bbq, park rules said no propane and they were using propane. Of course the professional victim mentality kicks in which allows certain people to feel they can act however they want and if they get called out on it the reason must be racism. Dey dindu nuffin and wuz on dey way to help dey sick grandma gets to a prayer meeting.

s.s. said...

Jesus, dumb posters here comparing neighbors calling cops on an annoyance with an elaborate hate hoax that could have resulted in deadly riots ?

Rosie, you are stupid, go back to watching your reality TV shows and leave the social commentary to people with functioning brains...

Vita said...

As far as the RKelly thing...does anyone else feel like that whole "not able to post bail" thing seem off?

Totally plausible, as he got evicted from studio, owing $170k+. However, given that this has been brewing and bubbling for months, I just wonder if he's not playing poor to protect his fortune and make victims think they should settle for much lower amounts than they'd want to pursue.

Glue said...

This says a lot about what a fucked up world we live in today. Especially America. We are such a stupid and ass-backwards nation.

A man can rape and beat a teenager, keep her hostage for years and do this to many young girls, over and over and over again...year after year and no one says a word. Even when evidence comes out, he still is being supported by many Americans.

Yet, another man claimed something false because of his insecurities (you have to be one insecure and disillusioned person to even come up w/ a hair-brained idea like that) and America wants him executed.

Seriously?
What is wrong w/ this picture.

I'm not saying what Jussie did was right. It wasn't. It set us back as a nation and he should be held accountable, but let's be REAL here...lying to get attn versus raping/beating/hostage/pedophilia.

Again, America.... Seriously? You are going to choose the side of the pedophile?!!

Our nation's priorities are so fucked up. It's embarrassing.

Vita said...

*seems

Max Power said...

For the folks that said, "Well, he's screwed in the public's eyes - good enough".... are you kidding me? Anyone who fakes a hate crime in today's racially-charged environment needs to be strung up by their balls and/or tits and flogged within an inch of their life.

With "balls and/or tits", I think I've covered almost every possible gender configuration. Want to be PC and all.

Akbar Johnson said...

Who the fuck is choosing pedophilia? You can want both to be held accountable you know, and the fact that both of them are black plays a huge role in this too. When R Kelly was first accused years ago the black community stood by him because thats what they did back then, stand by another person of color no matter what they had done, like OJ. Now they are a little more saavy and realize thats not always the best course of action, plus the evidence just kept piling up on R Kelly. Jussie on the other hand, tried to use this exact same thinking to his advantage and even black people thought it smelled like shit from the beginning. The fact that he's also gay made it easier for a lot of black people to doubt him as well as there is still a huge stigma for that in certain parts of the black community.

astra worthington said...

Of course he won’t get shit done to him. And we all know why.

Aquagirl said...

@Brayson: Apparently he’s done ecstasy a few times in the past year, and he’s saying he has an untreated drug problem? Please!

If they don’t prosecute him, I’m gonna be so pissed. He could’ve caused major riots over this and will make it harder for future victims. Apparently the FBI would let the state charge him first. I disagree—I’d charge him with the more serious crime first assuming they have an air-tight case. He’d definitely go to jail if he got convicted of mail fraud.

B626 said...

Are the 2 bodybuilders refusing to cooperate now and Lawyering up(withJussie’s money)??

Do Tell said...

They can't prove that he wasted public resources, with all the testimony from those two dopes he hired? For real?

rosie riveter said...

I'm sorry, nutty. I forget here at CDAN everyone is wildly wealthy, buying homes for their parents and traveling the world.. "A man at a mailbox" is what we peasants call someone near the place where we all collect our mail

rosie riveter said...

First off, I'll just play nice and ask you to stay in your lane s.s

Secondly, I don't have cable.

And lastly, the social commentary on here (recently) has had a real "white power" type of feel.
...So as soon as I see the more reasonable,decent and kind people show up, maybe I'll go back to my few, and simple, comments.
Until then. Here I Am.

Depeche Model said...

R Kelly needs to be locked up for life imo, and castrated as well.

Now Jussie. H'es not some insecure boy who made a silly mistake. He's a 40 year old sociopath who deliberately staged a racist hate crime, in this volatile political atmosphere, to get sympathy for being black and gay, which nobody gives a flying fuck about. I never even heard of him before all of this. He jumped onto the TDS bandwagon and followed their script to the letter.

The reason he's a dangerous sociopath, is because if 2 innocent white men would have been arrested, then he would have done nothing to aquit them. He would have happily watched innocent people dragged off to jail, lives ruined, their families lives ruined, just to fed his own narcissistic victim mentality and social justice warrior, leftist liberal political leanings.

What he did was show the content of his character to the world. Nobody cares about his fucking skin colour.

Families bbqing is an ‘annoyance?’ A little girl selling water outside the place she lives is an ‘annoyance?’ s.s ‘third reich’ before you call someone stupid, pull out some windex and give your mirror a good wipe.

Latresa Copes said...

Enlighten us, great Trailer Park Oracle.

Brayson87 said...

On the other hand Jussie did do a public service proving how ass backwards the mainstream media is, and so close to the Covington High incident. They made literally fake news stories back to back. Shame Ellen Page had to lose her sh!t on Colbert when there are actually real victims out there.

Akbar Johnson said...

Using a propane grill in a common area is more than an annoyance, it's dangerous. If you can't read and comprehend a sign that says "no propane grills" then I'm going to go ahead and assume you're not smart enough to actually operate one correctly, and when it explodes I shouldn't have to risk my family being caught on fire, hit by shrapnel or covered in weave remains because someone thinks they are in a protected class and the rules don't apply to them.

Depeche Model said...

Hey Rosie, the 'feelin'g you're describing here is not white power, but brain power. It comes as no surprise you'd confuse the two.

Jussie clearly has the mental capacity of a pre teen. Paying with a cheque, not surrendering his phone to the police, leaving a noose around his neck for an hour, holding onto a subway sandwich while being almost lynched. And thinking that the average person will believe him?
He's clearly borderline retarded.

2 white MAGA-hat wearing guys, screaming MAGA MAGA, where out in Chicago (of all places), in the middle of the night, on the coldest night in decades, armed with a noose and (frozen) bleach, looking for their target Jussie fucking Smollett - a d-list actor nobody has ever heard of - to roughen up, only to leave him with a microscopic scratch, because he heroically beat them both into retreat, all while holding his subway sandwich, is a brilliant story. I love it. Haven't laughed this hard in ages.

Somewhere in this Subway needs to make a commercial. It would be a waste if they didn't.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Jussie's already getting the "affluenza" treatment in the latest Hollywood Reporter cover story:

"I'm About to Break": Jussie Smollett and the Pressure of Hollywood Fame."

"Did the pressures of childhood fame or a struggling music career play a role in causing him to concoct what police are now deeming an elaborate hoax?"

The mostly sympathetic article also talks about how publicists were desperate to keep their clients from being asked about Jussie as his story unravelled. Questions about Jussie were blacklisted at several events, according to the piece.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Fun quote from the Hollywood Reporter piece:

Over Oscar weekend, one Hollywood insider who has known Smollett and his family for decades told THR, “He’s a good guy, but he’s also an actor, and actors sometimes crave attention, and that comes out in weird ways.”

astra worthington said...

Because he’s black and gay, Latrina Craps. Now fuck back on to whatever inner city dump you live in, and leave me alone. 🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻

astra worthington said...

I’d say don’t you have any actual work to do at your affirmative action job up there in Philly, but I guess not, if you have so much free time to follow me around and reply to me 🤷🏼‍♀️ Lol guess you know you can’t get fired either because that would be racist huh?

astra worthington said...

Akbar, it’s racist to expect certain races to follow the rules and laws. Didn’t you know? They’re SPECIAL and the fact that maybe some of their ancestors were slaves at some point generations ago, gives them a free pass to do whatever they want! Isn’t it something, to refuse to follow the laws and rules and then act like the victim? Then get everyone kissing your ass because of your skin color, but yeah yeah WHITE PRIVILEGE 🙄

J said...

lol @ Barnyard Rosie "playing nice." Shit-for-brains trash. Folks will stay in their lanes once she stays in her gutter.

Simon said...

Come on. I don’t buy this one, Enty. They have text messages. the police chief says there is a lot of evidence. He will be prosecuted unless they do a plea deal. There’s no way to explain him saying they were white when they were black and they knew each other. It’s preposterous

drew holthaus said...

Feds should go after him. Supposedly they have the magazine letter at the Nigerians place

T. W. said...

The Jussie Smollett debacle saddens me.

Guest777 said...

Nobody else sees the 6 degrees of separation here? (Jessie's mullet) lol

Weekittylass said...

My man Todd said as soon as this happened ‘Ain’t no brother out trying to buy a damn subway sandwich in Chicago at 2 am in the middle of a polar vortex. Ain’t never happened. That n——- made that shit up.’ I would have to agree.

GentleBreeze said...

I've read one hundred comments about this case but no one addresses this man's name. Jussie? Jussie!? Is his given name Justin? OK. but Jussie fcs. Jackass.

HeatherBee said...

@ Depech Model- wouldn’t you love to be in a boardroom at Subway HQ? First, they are associated with Jared and now Jussie. I wonder what their new campaign could be. “ Subway- not just for child predators and sociopaths”.

rabbit said...

I really liked his character on Empire. But sending a threatening letter to yourself to get a raise? Isn't that what actors pay their agents to do, get the raise, negotiate? Having him pay the costs of all the police work would be an appropriate penalty. That will use up all his money, because he won't be working professionally again for a very long time.

Vita said...

HeatherBee- priceless!😂😂😂

Pink_Palace said...

Geragos and company are trying to bring up as much dirt as possible on the Nigerian brothers. They are supposedly homophobic aholes and of COURSE that was a check for training screams poor misunderstood Jussie...

Just confess and go quietly away or get found guilty like Scott Peterson and shut Geragos up for awhile.

Geragos and Jose Baez who got poor misunderstood Aaron Hernandez and Casey Anthony acquitted disgust me...Then you have Allred, Bloom and Avenati on the other side.

I wish they would all go away...

DarylsBigFan said...

"the Humiliation of Jussie Smollett" was a very obvious distraction media piece.
To distract from what?
1. R Kelly story . 2. Korea/Vietnam meeting/Trump.

It won't be prosecuted. Chicago has much bigger fish to fry.

Tee said...

Wow good point

Tee said...

What a piece of shit u are 😂😂😂

Depeche Model said...

Heather - excellent! How about "Subway sandwiches give you the power to beat 2 enormous trainers into retreat, disclaimer: Subway does not endorse financing fake hate crimes, but we do suggest our tomato sauce based sub, for realistic special effects"

astra worthington said...

Looks like the facts triggered another person 🤷🏼‍♀️

Name calling vs facts...HMMM 🤔

Don’t forget “aspiring rapper” and “he a good boy, he turning his life around”! It’s almost like there’s a script somewhere.....

Unknown said...

The Feds weighed in and have found the letter does not match either Jussie's handwriting or vernacular. The two brothers are on record as threatening gay men with beatings or death and threatening Jussie previously on the set of Empire.

And law enforcement won't even have a chat with the beckies who file false police reports because a family is barbecuing in a park, selling bottled water on a 100° day in the Bay Area or running kids out of a swimming party or, or or... Only one small town finally came out tho specifically tell the beckies that being black is not against the law so STOP CALLING 911!

That's the problem with allowing white folks to use local law enforcement as their personal security force and not arresting them for malicious mischief. It goes both ways.. As well it should.

Get over it. Black folks have to "get over it" every day of their existence. It doesn't feel very good, does it?!! Yep! I know exactly how you feel.

Depeche Model said...

Fuck off Unknown. People such as yourself are the main reason for this division. You engage in identity politics. You would NEVER believe Jussie's bullshit if he were white. The ONLY reason you believe him is because he isn't.

And your 'cool story bro'' still does not explain how the 2 Nigerians weren't 2 white Maga-hat wearing whiteys, like Jussie claimed, but 2 BLACK NIGERIANS he knew!

And btw, I'd rather be a Becky than a Shaniqua, even though I never called the police on anyone because of skin colour. At least Becky is a real fucking name, short for Rebecca. Half the names in your family are just made up nonsense, a result of cough-or-sneeze-like-sounds.

Shaaaaa- niquA

Gesundheit!

Nutty_Flavor said...

Oh dear, looks like Jussie has hired a social media team too.

Too late. And too obviously fake.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Anyway, Jon Mixon on Quora has got a good piece answering the question "Can Jussie Smollett's career survive this scandal?"

https://qr.ae/TUf0tD

Jon's best point:

"He can't be trusted— If the allegations behind this event are proven to be true (That Smollet attempted to extort his current employer into giving him a salary increase) then almost no production is going want to deal with him.

"The very few who might will make him sign very restrictive contracts to protect themselves from a similar occurrence, they'll fire him for the least violation of that contract, and they will offer him far less money as he's “damaged goods”.

"No matter what Smollet does going forward, no one in the business is going to risk trusting him for years to come."

La Femme Italienne Africaine said...

Yeah waste police funds and time because a family was in a barbecue-designated area, but had a charcoal grill in a “non-charcoal” zone; as if they don’t have better to do.

DarylO said...

Uhh, have any of you guys actually READ those text messages, as in all the ones in which they discussed the actual physical training and nutritional advice that he had paid for? Also, why would the brothers have asked to be paid by check when Jussie had previously paid them through Venmo? Doesn't anyone think that that is strange? The corrupt CPD hasn't yet presented ANY evidence that incriminates Jussie, and they can't even provide a compelling motive. I hope this blind item is true. He's quite likely innocent, and a good guy like him doesn't deserve to be raked over the coals like this!

Count Jerkula said...

DarylO, delusional stan.
